MFT Get Sketchy – # 165

Hello Everyone!

It is a lovely spring day here warm and sunny with lovely spring flowers blooming! After such a wet and dull winter (although not much snow which is very unusual for this part of the world) it really is a welcome sight!

Anyhow on to today’s card. This is for MFT Get Sketchy #165. I have loads of MFT dies I really love them and am particularly enjoying the word dies and Blueprints with all of their cool elements.

Here is the sketch……….

One of my favourite paper collections at the moment is Plus One by Amy Tan…I just love it! So of course I had to use it on this card along with MFT’s Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set to create a banner greeting across an acetate window. I lined the inside of the card with another paper from the collection to provide a contrast to the paper on the front.

Supplies: Card – PTI Stamper’s Select White, MFT Sour Apple. Papers – Plus One by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. Stamps – MFT Birthday Sentiments. Dies – MFT Fishtail Flag Stax,  Spellbinders  Standard Circle Large. Ink – Versafine Onyx Black. Buttons and Acetate – From my stash.

Hope you have a great day!

Freshly Made Sketches – Sketch # 125

Hi there

I said I would be back today and here am!!  I know two posts in two days whatever next!!

Today I have a card made for Freshly Made Sketches # 125.

Here is the inspiration sketch by Narelle………..

Again I kept it simple and stuck pretty much to the sketch as given making a focal point out of some stacked hello die cuts from My Favorite Things. I stacked up several white die cuts and topped the stack with an aqua one. I love the look of these and have used them on quite a few cards. As a finishing touch I added a few sequins.

The papers are from one of my current favourite 6 x 6 paper pads……Garden Party by Pebbles. I just love the pink, green and aqua combination!

So here is my card…….

Supplies: Card –  Bazzill Robin’s Egg, MFT Cotton Candy, PTI  Stampers Select White. Papers – Pebbles Garden Party 6 x 6 pad. Dies MFT Dienamics Happy Hellos. Sequins – Lawn Fawn Lawn Ornaments Into the Woods and Peace Joy Love.

Back soon…..Promise!! x

Paper Smooches – February Designer Draft

Helle Again!!

Well I am back at last after a loooooooooong break! Stuff happens as we all know and can get in the way of blogging and crafting!

For my first post I have a card for the Paper Smooches February Designer Draft. I love Paper Smooches stamps and dies especially the sentiments which are always a go to for me!

So here is the inspiration for this challenge……..

A great simple sketch that would be a basis for many different cards. For my card I followed the sketch pretty closely using a couple of great Paper Smooches sets and some cool new papers from the new AMy Tangerine line – Plus One.

I usually try to interpret sketches in a more creative way but as I am still having to look around for my mojo a bit so I am keeping things simple for now :)

So here is my card………

P1000999

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplies: Card – SU Basic Grey, PTI white. Papers – Amy Tangerine Plus One 6 x 6. Stamps – Paper Smooches Boob Tubes and Slang Gang. Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black. Copic Markers N1 and N3. Pearls – Doodlebug. Twine and button from my stash.
